    Phèdre est un des nombreux dialogues socratiques transmis par Platon. Il y est question de la beauté et de l'amour, entendu comme désir, dans un premier temps, puis de la beauté d'un discours et de la rhétorique dans un second temps. L'amour comme la rhétorique peuvent éléver la beauté de l'âme mais ils peuvent tout aussi bien l'abaisser, en s'attachant seulement au plaisir et à la domination d'autrui. Au contraire, celui qui, à travers l'être aimé ou à travers le beau discours, contemple des idées pures, gagnera en sagesse et en beauté.

    When Roberta, Peter and Phyllis' dad is suddenly and unexpectedly sent to prison, the children are suddenly pulled away from their comfortable suburban life. They move with their mother to the "Three Chimneys," a countryside house that sits near the railway. As the children settle into their new life, the railway allows them to meet and befriend a series of characters, some of whom need their help, and some whom might just be able to help them.
    First published in 1905 as a serial, "The Railway Children" has been popular with readers from its beginning. It has been adapted to the screen and the stage several times, and remain a children's favourite to this day.
